Workshop name: Youth@Work

ABSTRACT

Youth@Work is an interactive workshop that aims at introducing a good practice and an innovative youth-friendly tool (a board game) on entrepreneurship and social entrepreneurship. It is the first of its kind in Europe and Turkey and has been implemented successfully with various groups such as potential entrepreneurs, university students, high school students, CSOs, etc in more than 8 countries.

The tool and its training module were firstly developed within the EU – Turkey Civil Society Dialogue Programme in partnership with one of the most well know youth CSOs in Italy, Associazione Joint and is now being implemented in several countries in Europe and Latin America. The game offers a mini-training in 4 parts which aims to bring the “players” from business ideas to action: 1st part is about various definitions of entrepreneurship and social entrepreneurship. 2nd part aims at introducing and analysing inspiring examples. 3rd part is for designing the business model around Canvas and the final part is for pitching potential investors.

During the workshop, we kindly invite the participants to experience the game by going through each stage partly and to introduce them in which context they can use this module.

This workshop will be led by Ayça BAĞCI and Tuğba ÇANŞALI
